Prime Day is in full effect and even mountain bikers and other cyclists can get in on the Prime Day deals. The Garmin Edge 1030 Plus cycling computer is marked down to $400 for Prime Day, and it’s a good option for tracking your rides if the best Prime Day smartwatch deals don’t have what you’re looking for. This cycling computer offers much more than even the best smartwatches are able to when it comes to your ride, and this deal offers a massive savings of $300 from its regular price of $700.

Why you should get the Garmin Edge 1030 Plus GPS cycling computer

Garmin has long been known for making great GPS devices, but even the best Garmin watches can’t quite live up to what a cycling computer has to offer. The Garmin Edge 1030 Plus is the ultimate GPS cycling computer. It has a 3.5-inch color touchscreen display that combines navigation, performance tracking, cycling awareness, and smart connectivity. This display allows you to receive on-device ride and workout suggestions based on your current training load, and you can even get training guidance from the Garmin Connect app. This cycling computer can get an impressive 24 hours of battery life on a single charge, and it works with the Garmin Charge power pack, which can get you an additional 24 hours of cycling time.

Where the Garmin Edge 1030 Plus really starts to set itself apart from devices like fitness trackers is with bicycle-specific stats. It’s able to track your jump count on a ride, as well as jump distance and hang time. This makes it a great companion to any of the best mountain bikes. Other features include Grit, which rates the difficulty of a ride, and Flow, which measures how smoothly you descend a trail so you can try to beat your scores from previous rides. The ClimbPro feature helps you manage long climbs, showing remaining ascent and grade when you’re climbing while following a route or course. This cycling computer can also be used for daily bike commutes and for casual bike rides to and from anywhere.

The Garmin Edge 1030 Plus GPS cycling computer would normally set you back a whopping $700, but for Prime Day you can grab it at Amazon for just $400. This is a $300 savings, and free shipping is included with a purchase.

I turned my van into an office with a battery-powered AC and heat pump

Like a lot of remote workers, I know I’m lucky to be able to work from home. I have a home office with a comfy leather chair, a skylight, and an oversized doofus of a dog, Marty, who reclines adorably on the couch behind me for Zoom meetings. But I’d also be lying if I didn’t admit I go a little stir crazy from time to time, yearning to work from somewhere other than the same place I eat, sleep, and relax.

How about a van? I bought my 1990 Mitsubishi Delica for camping, but it always seemed like it could serve as a mobile office with a view, if not for one critical shortcoming: For nine months out of the year in Portland, it’s too cold, and for the other three, it’s too hot. Without adding thousands of dollars for a battery power system, my best bet was heavy socks and gloves. But EcoFlow gave me a glimmer of hope at CES 2023 when I spotted the EcoFlow Wave 2. With an onboard battery, it promised to heat or cool anywhere, no external power system needed.

Goodbye, coolers. The EcoFlow Glacier doesn’t need ice — it makes it
The EcoFlow Glacier is a fridge shaped like a cooler with its own battery,

Every cooler operates on borrowed time. It leaves for your camping trip brimming over with crisp produce and ice-encrusted beer that looks straight out of a Super Bowl commercial, and returns with a soggy block of foil-wrapped cheddar cheese floating in a pool of mustard water. Mother Nature always wins.

Perhaps that’s why I was so enamored when I saw the EcoFlow Glacier at CES 2023. Less a cooler than a mobile battery-powered fridge on wheels, the sleek electric Glacier not only obviated the need for ice, it would make ice for me in 18 minutes. My home fridge can’t even do that, and I didn’t even know I wanted it to until just now. When EcoFlow offered to let me try the Glacier, I envisioned sipping a perspiring glass of whiskey in the tropics and accepted the occupational hazards of my job.

I was wrong. E-bikes are so practical, they’re a transit cheat code
An Aventon Level 2 ebike sits outside a grocery store.

Confession: Despite loving both bikes and gadgets, e-bikes never excited me. Compared to my bicycle, e-bikes seemed unfair. Compared to my motorcycle, they seemed slow. Compared to my car, they seemed impractical.

But with $1,500 federal e-bike rebates potentially on the horizon at part of E-Bike Act, I decided it was past time to reconsider. Not just because 30% off would make them way more accessible, but because the entire idea that e-bikes could be worthy of a rebate changed the way I looked at them: less as toys, more as transit. Had I written off an entire way of getting around because I was looking at it the wrong way?
